Right around the corner from the remnants of Fort Astoria (Fort George), is this gem of a craft brewery. We worked up quite an appetite spending the morning at the Columbia River Maritime Museum and found the brewery a short walk away through historic downtown Astoria. It was a beautiful day so we went to the deck where dogs are welcome to lounge in the sun while we eat and drink. Food was excellent, including the Anaheim chile burger and some amazing jambalaya concoction that I don't think even the chef had a name for. The beer was excellent, and you're can try a taster or two if you're unsure about getting a whole pint. They might even offer tasting "flights" of their in-house brews, but we went right for the volume! Will definitely be back when we visit the very NW tip of Oregon again.

We had to try the sausage sampler plate (they make their own sausage) and it was fantastic. Also had a very good salad, cheesecake and beers. Very cool building, good food, good service and good beer. Kind of spendy -- a pint, a half pint, the sausage plate, two salads and a dessert cost $42. Still worth going to but the prices mean I won't be going on a routine basis.

We were in Astoria for a few hours over the weekend and visited Fort George on basis of recommendation from friends who lived in the area in the past. We tried a sampler of the current beer offerings and the sausage pizza, both of which were great. We then managed to find ourselves on one of their free tours (Sat and Sun at 1 and 4). Brewery was a lot of fun and a good place to stop and relax for awhile in Astoria.

We were wandering around the north Oregon Coast on a quest to find the best clam chowder in the region. We stopped in at Ft George for a brew in mid-afternoon and decided we should try the chowder just on general principles. After trying several places touted for having the 'best clam chowder on the coast' and being largely disappointed, we were blown away by the chowder at Ft George. Clearly made totally from scratch on the spot (you can't get stuff remotely like this out of a can in any way, shape, or form!!), this was the closest we have found to true New England chowder, or even better yet Irish seafood chowder on the West Coast of Ireland.

It was a true delight. If you're looking for real chowder on the Oregon coast, this is definitely a must-stop location.

Oh yeah, the beer wasn't bad either.

We ate lunch here on a recent Sunday afternoon. We were happy to find it after stepping into several less than stellar appearing restaurants. The menu is large and we enjoyed everything that we ordered. As I mentioned we had looked long and hard to find this place, we were starved when we ordered. The food took a pretty long time to come out. We must have been looking pretty sad because the manager brought over our order, apologized for the wait and offered complimentary cheesecake. We were too full to enjoy it there but our server insisted that she box it to take along. I am happy that she did because it was AMAZING.
